Nearly 200 students kickstarted their semester with an adventure-charged NUS MBA orientation held at Outward Bound School on the island of Pulau Ubin.

It’s almost two months now from when we officially started our NUS MBA journey.   Looking back at the numerous events during orientation week, I think fondly of the 2 days spent in Outward Bound Singapore.

Early morning of August 1 found two buses-full of NUS MBAs en route to Pulau Ubin, an island off the northeastern part of Singapore.   It felt like going to summer camp. (In the end, all that was missing was a bonfire! 😛 ) You can feel the excitement (interspersed with a dose of concern maybe, with some—including me—wondering how physically intensive the activities would be!)
